Redskins show solidarity with Ferguson protest

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — The "Hands up, don't shoot" protest has made its way to the NFL. The Washington Redskins secondary emerged from the stadium tunnel during pregame introductions Monday night with hands raised and palms forward. It was a show of solidarity with the people in Ferguson, Missouri, who are protesting the shooting of teenager Michael Brown. Eleven players took part as the team was preparing to face the Cleveland Browns. Safety Ryan Clark said Brown "could have been any one of us. That could have been any one of our brothers, our cousins. ... When you get an opportunity to make a statement and be more than a football player, it's good." Protesters have gathered daily in Ferguson since Brown was fatally was shot by a police officer Aug. 9. ___ AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL
